Arun Advani

I am an Associate Professor in the Economics Department at the University of Warwick. I am also a Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, a Visiting Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute, Research Associate of the CAGE Research Centre, CESifo Research Affiliate, and Inequalities theme leader at the Warwick Brain Behaviour and Society GRP. From 2020-22 (creation to abolition) I was a member of the Department for Education Skills and Productivity Board.

I study issues of inequality, tax compliance, and tax design, with a focus on those with high incomes or wealth. I am a Commissioner at the Wealth Tax Commission. I also work on issues of environmental taxation, economic development, migration, and tax in low- and middle-income countries.

I am co-chair of the Discover Economics campaign, aiming to increase the diversity of people who study and work in economics. I'm also an Associate Editor at Fiscal Studies, and on the Editorial Board of the Economics Observatory.
